Web Filter Certificate Installation

 

Purpose

Fayetteville City Schools maintains an Internet filter as required by law to protect students from inappropriate material on the public Internet.  The filter requires that a specific certificate authority certificate be installed on all devices that might be used by a student accessing our network, including student-owned smartphones, tablets and laptops.

We distribute this certificate to all school owned devices automatically but students and the general public who bring their own devices will need to install this certificate manually.
